 ERROR DESCRIPTION:
 Summary of Problem:  WARP fails to install (to e:) from CDROM
 on a system in which 2.11 installed from CDROM fine (on d:
 using the same settings).  The Driver BTSCSI.ADD is hanging the
 system shortly after accessing the CDROM.
 .
 ****** General Hardware/Software Configuration ******
 OS/2 Version:                      WARP 3.0
 Service Level:                     GA
 System Brand & Model:              Microsmart P90 Opti
 Motherboard
 System is a:                       DESKTOP SYSTEM
 Processor:                         Pentium
 System Processor Speed:            90Mhz
 System Memory Size:                16 MB

 System BIOS Version:               v4.506
 System Bus Type                    PCI/ISA
 Error Experienced:                 Hang in BTSCSI.add
 Disk Controller MFG./Model #:      Buslogic PCI BT-946C

 Video Board:                       Diamond Viper PCI

 File System:                       FAT
 Floppy A: Disk Drive Size:         3.5
 .
 Additional information as follows:
 While OS2 2.11 works and installs from CDROM fine, replacing
 the Warp driver with the 2.11 does not repair the problem.
 .
 SCSI Bus is properly terminated, and the CDROM and HARDDRIVE
 are the only things on it.
 CDROM fails at x4 speed and single and is a SCSI-2 which works
 under 2.11.
 .
 Buslogic CARD specs:
 Bios 4.84
 Firmaware 4.21
 Set for INT#c level triggered
 .
 Buslogic has been contacted.
 
 
 LOCAL FIX:
 The hang is being caused by the Buslogic adapter not being
 configured correctly. Please not that although this adapter may
 have worked under 2.11, it may still not be configured
 correctly as WARP is fully PCI enabled, while 2.11 was not.
 .
 The problem caused by the adapter which is not a fully PCI 2.0
 compliant (this is true of all revisions earilier than "c").
 What needs to be done is setting the INT pin(a,b,c,d)for the
 slot to the match on the mother board, this may be different
 for every mother board.  On intel mother boards it is typically
 Slot#1 INTA, Slot#2 INTB, Slot#3 INTC, Slot#4 INTD. On an Opti
 mother board the situation is the same but the card in slot two
 had to be set to int#a even though slot#2 was int#b on the
 mother board.
 .
 Both the mother board, and the adapter need to be set.
 Customers should be refered to Buslogic for further assistance
 configuring these adapters.

Notes

T. Conley (tconley@texas.net) writes (6th August, 1995):

Just a note concerning the BUSLOGIC BT946C PCI SCSI Controller. I am using it with no problems (almost) I am also using a Plextor PX63CS internal 6X CD-ROM.


My only trial was that the install was a bit strange with a couple of extra boots but it finally got under way and I think used a 4X driver from Plextor for my drive.


I got the system from MICRON and it works very nice with OS2 Warp. (Pent 133) Anyhow just thought I'd pass the info along.
